Lie Detectors has adapted its format to distance-learning to respond to the coronavirus pandemic.
Our new format prompts children and adults to fact-check corona-related social media posts. It’s accessible for all children regardless of digital connectedness. At the end of every module, we create virtual classroom visits during which pupils ask our journalists questions on news literacy and fact checking at this critical time. Feedback has been extremely positive and we are gathering findings to inform our work as schools adapt. To find out more or participate in our corona-adapted programme, see here.
